2018 Improvements Made

The Friends Of Olde Mill (FOOM) have been busy making plans, improvements and hosting events to better our community. This past Spring 2018, we have: 

Installed 4 new benches 

Replaced the broken volleyball posts

Replaced the Swings' Hardware

Removed the two dying bushes by the Barlowe Field parking lot entry

Bought and installed a new Evergreen Tree

Playscape Build Day:

 Please bring your shovels, gloves and wheelbarrows.

Many thanks to all who volunteered to make our spring build days productive and fun! We hung a new vollyball net, installed the sandpit under pergola, replaced a board on the pergola, fixed the broken swing and reinforced the loose handholds on the climbing wall. Check out the "photos" of the day.

If you can lend a hand, let us know click "contact us."
